Croken works to help region
Over the last ten years, I have gotten to know Ken Croken personally and professionally.
Last year I was struck with Guillian Barre Syndrome, a rare illness which left me fully paralyzed and on a ventilator for several months. Throughout that experience Ken visited me frequently, used his past knowledge of health care to help my mother navigate the web of bureaucracy, and helped me get back on my feet once I left the hospital by driving me to work nearly every day for several weeks.
I worked for Ken for three years, and he helped instill in me a passion for health care and care for others that carries into my work today.
Aside from being an outstanding friend, I have seen him work with a huge variety of community groups and causes to help make our region a successful, welcoming, and prosperous one. One could literally fill a book with the local organizations he has worked with, chaired or helped to found.
And I'm not the only one who sees his potential; Croken has been endorsed by labor groups, the Quad Cities Chamber of Commerce, and numerous other organizations that work to make the Quad Cities a better place for all.
Ken always fights hard and passionately for every cause in which he is involved. Let's put him to work for the people of Scott County. Vote Ken Croken for Scott County Supervisor. Early voting is open now, why wait?
